It has become a tradition at Sundowns or the playing personnel and technical staff to share the R10 million prize money.

“Everybody looks forward to winning because they know they are in for a big pay day,” a source was quoted as saying by Sunday World.

“The entire team gets a cut according to their contribution during the season. It’s only fair, but sometimes it can create some envy of others getting more than the rest.”
